    Pros

    The culture in my department, as well as the institution as a whole was incredible. Working on a collaborative grant I was supported at every step.

    I have been working at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Reasonable vacation, varied teaching load, good colleagues, opportunities for internal funding support, education opportunities

    Cons

    Parking, IT support is mediocre at best, senior leadership doesn't listen to rank and file, siloed approaches to global problems drive faculty away.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to rank and file faculty, not just the 'special' ones. Provide better support of infrastructure to allow researchers to do their jobs with best/cutting edge technology, more support and training for grantsmanship
